You'll want to make sure you have the Microsoft URL Rewrite Module installed, and create a rule template as covered step-by-step here:

IIS.net - User Friendly URL - rule template

The other way to do this is edit your web.config file, as covered here (substituting your URL's under "The lines to modify...").

  • I had to tweak the resulting rules from the User Friendly URL templates results as the URL paths are slightly different, but this did the trick.
